Bitcoin hits the ceiling

Market picture 

Crypto market capitalisation rose 2% over the past 24 hours to $858bn. Bitcoin added 2.3% to $17.2K, trading near the top of its range since November 12.

The technical picture remains the same for Bitcoin, and it will need to confirm a move out of its abnormally narrow range, whichever way it moves.

In the event of a further rise, such confirmation would see a consolidation at above $18K, near the 50-day moving average and local support from June through October. A downward move could lead to further decline if it sends the price below $16K.
